About the Owner

Hi, I'm Liz Croft, this is me outside the front door of the Cottage at New Year 2016......We'd love you to come & stay at our fabulous 'home from home' Holiday Cottage in beautiful North Pembrokeshire, West Wales..

We run Plas Drygarn Cottage as a small family concern along side our other full time jobs.. We care about our visitors & their enjoyment & aim to tailor each week to it's occupants needs. We found this was something we couldn't do if used an Agency as they don't let you have contact with clients before their stay.

The best part of the last 9 years has been to see families & couples return to us each year once they have discovered us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a guest book for your comments which we do follow up on if any suggestions are made...It is full of praise for the cottage, the surrounding area & our hospitality.. We have had a range of visitors from honeymoon couples to 4 generations of 1 family stay here...It seems to be suiting small families who wish to bring grandparents. It is proving to be a very versatile property.

Tranquil setting, friendly owner - and we were lucky with the weather

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4 including 2 teenagers) had a lovely time here. Liz was very helpful though not intrusive, my son enjoyed the visits from the dogs, and we all enjoyed the lovely views and peace and quiet of surrounding areas.

It's a great base for coastal walk, seaside and nearby resorts - though perhaps not as central as St Davids area.

We were especially lucky with the weather, and friends have raised their eyebrows when we said "who needs Majorca beaches when you can go to Mwnt beach (15 mins away) in South Wales" !

A good choice for a family of 4 who want peace and quiet and relaxation in Pembrokeshire.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for people that appreciate a quiet location with far reaching views. There is a public footpath practically on the doorstep so perfect for dog walking. The cottage is really well appointed with everything you need for cooking and dining. The ground floor bedroom and shower room is perfect for the less mobile. Liz was a great host even amending the normal Saturday start to a Friday as we were taking part in a charity walk that started early on the Saturday morning. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Stunning views, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cozy and makes the best use of it's best asset: the views. Being dog friendly is a massive bonus with a lovely garden for small/medium dogs to run about in. (Local walks must all be on-lead - this is sheep country.) But what walks there are! The short hike up the hill in the picture is worth it for the 360 degree panorama that awaits you. Poppit-sands is just a 15 minute drive away and there there is a seemingly endless beach - and lots of other dogs to play with.

The cottage is pretty and equipped to a very high standard. Liz has worked so hard to make sure that everything is just perfect. We did not find anything lacking and if there was, Liz made it clear that she's very keen to find out what and put it right. This was our first time in this part of the country and our accommodation choice added to the mix to us to fall in love with the whole region.

Welcoming and lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Liz, thank you for our holiday at your cottage, which we really enjoyed. The cottage was clean, comfy and well equipped. Very well situated, with good views and within easy reach of beautiful places. Thank you also for the homely extras that made us feel welcome and for being so friendly and helpful, especially by returning our squashed mobile phone which we still use occasionally.

Wonderful Cottage In Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage for our first ever holiday to Pembrokshire and all we can say is WOW what a find.

The owner Liz is a pleasure to deal with from our initial enquiry and all the time afterwards , always responding to emails etc promptly and giving lots of advice and tips with web adresses etc to help you get the most from your stay.

The oictures of the cottage dont do it justice ,it is in a perfect location no more than 45mins drive away from all of the main visitor spots that Pembrokshire has to offer (and there are plenty!)

The cottage is equipped with absolutley everything you need ,fully fitted kitchen ,washing machine ,tumbledryer,dishwasher,microwave even a slow cooker,they have thought of everything.

There is a huge showerroom downstairs along with a full size bathroom upstairs,a lovely lounge with a freeveiw tv and dvd player, that opens out into a sun room / conservatory that is just perfect to sit in and enjoy the veiw over your own private garden and then the paddock beyond .

I honestly cant reccomend this cottage enough, it is literally home from home in a beautiful part of the country, I guarentee you will not be dissapointed if you book it , we will definatley be back !

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review Jason & Claire. I'm glad we met, maybe even exceeded your expectations of the Cottage in October for your half term holiday with your 3 teenage daughters. I really look forward to welcoming you back with your new your dog as part of the family next time, at least you can see he will fit in here & all around Pembrokeshire.

From the Owner

We bought this derelict small holding in 2000 & have done up the main Farmhouse for ourselves at a higher level than the Cottage. So far we have completed one barn conversion which is Plas Drygarn Cottage..We have been renting it out since Oct 2009 with 4* grading. We have made a good start on renovating a 2nd lower level property but will be another few years before completion. We chose this spot knowing that although rural & peaceful we were still just 5 minutes drive away from the small town of Crymych with both Primary & Secondary Schools for our children as well as a Leisure Centre, Swimming Pool, Rugby Club & great variety of small shops.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : CARDIFF at 100 Miles Nearest Barpub : CRYMYCH at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : FISHGUARD HARBOUR at 20 Miles Nearest Golf : NEWPORT at 10 Miles Nearest Train : CLUNDERWEN STATION at 6 Miles Nearest Motorway : M4 at 60 Miles Nearest Restaurant : CRYMYCH at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : NEWPORT SANDS at 10 Miles Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Walking in the Preseli Hill range as well as along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. We are a pet friendly cottage allowing up to 2 well behaved dogs for a fee of £20 each per week.

Cycling Trails are sign posted locally.


15-20 minute drive to either Newport Sands or Poppit Sands. 40 minutes drive to Tenby, St Davids or Newquay making ideal days out..


Railway Station at Clunderwen is just 15 minutes away by car/taxi for any late arrivals in your party...


5 minutes drive to local town of Crymych, 15-20 minute drive to slightly bigger towns of Newport & Cardigan which are in opposite directions but both are near estuaries with sandy beaches.

Google Map marker is set wrongly at present, we are down a safe track well off main roads but can walk to Crymych via Public Footpath in just 15 minutes.

Further Details:

We aim to provide as much as we can for your holiday convenience & to save you bringing too much with you. For children & babies we have 2 of most things from travel cots, high chairs, dining booster seats, stair gates, bed guard, potties, step stool to sink, bath seats, changing mats & floor play rug.

There are toys, puzzles & books for all ages in the sideboard in the lounge.

In the shed is a toddler paddling pool, children sized out door furniture, beach toys & surf boards as well as a swing ball set. A climbing frame/slide/monkey bars can be moved into the garden during your stay on request..

For your well behaved pets please bring their own bedding or cage to prevent them using any furnishings.They are not allowed in any carpeted areas of the cottage hence most of downstairs is tiled except the bedroom. Dog towels would be required too & we have a hose at the kitchen door for washing down muddy or sandy dogs before coming back into the cottage.
